Westglades Middle School in Parkland joined 15 other middle schools across Florida, New England and the Mid-Atlantic to present their six-month long sustainability project as part of the Wheelabrator Symposium for Environment and Education in Sunrise on May 6.
As part of Wheelabrator’s 20th anniversary, ten students from the school shared their work on promoting ethical fishing practices, with the help of their partnership with the Guy Harvey Ocean Initiative.
The students were awarded the “Outstanding Public Information Project” award at the Symposium.
